I’m back with another Chagrin Valley review! *cue loud, annoying theme music*
I didn’t know Nettle had so many uses, did you?
What the company claims:
“Nettle, a remedy for oily hair, dandruff and hair shaft breakage, stimulates the scalp, improves circulation, and helps promote fuller, more radiant hair. Cedarwood, basil and rosemary help control dandruff and minimize hair loss. The silica in horsetail helps to keep hair strong and adds shine and luster to dull hair. Enriched with shea butter for extra conditioning.”
It helped my oily, dandruff-y hair to a degree, but I still had some dandruff problems. I didn’t notice much in the way of fuller, more radiant hair. Overall, this particular shampoo seemed to do good, but it wasn’t life-changing.
I needed a conditioner after shampooing. My hair isn’t dry, so I didn’t suffer severely parched locks after using Nettle shampoo, but I still felt that Nettle didn’t condition my hair adequately. If you have dry hair, invest in a deep conditioner.
I already have strong hair that does not break easily, so I could not tell if this would help strengthen hair or minimize breakage.
Pros: Helps with dandruff and oiliness, lathers easily, smells nice (kind of a plant-like smell).
Cons: Is not a long term solution for dandruff, not that conditioning, doesn’t seem to add much shine.
